Many people are under the impression that you must have a diagnosable and severe mental health issue in order to go to therapy. The very thought of a psychiatrist or psychologist might bring up images for you of someone suffering from a panic attack or suicidal thoughts.
But the truth is that anyone and everyone can benefit from therapy. It’s a tool to help us communicate more effectively, deal with our emotions in healthier ways, and navigate our everyday lives with grace and gratitude.
Even celebrities like Lady Gaga, who seems to have it all together, have benefited from therapy. Lady Gaga has struggled with trauma since she was in high school. Since then, she has become an advocate in the mental health community and encourages others to seek help when they need it.
You are not alone in your struggles, nor are you alone in your need for help. If you are facing a tough life change, relationship issues, or symptoms of a mental illness, we are here to help. Our psychiatrists, psychologists, counselors, and therapists at Thriveworks Counseling & Psychiatry Cornelius look forward to meeting you soon.
Can I Benefit From Therapy or Counseling?
In many ways, visiting a therapist or counselor for your mental health is no different from going to the doctor for a physical ailment or an accountant for help with your taxes. If you’re facing uncomfortable emotions or a difficult situation that you can’t handle on your own, our mental health professionals are here to help.
People choose to seek out therapy or counseling for many reasons. There is no issue too big or too small for our licensed professionals to sort through with you. Give us a call at Thriveworks Counseling & Psychiatry Cornelius to schedule your first appointment. We look forward to working with you to sort out whatever is weighing you down.
When Should I Consider Working With a Psychiatrist?
Unlike other mental health professionals, psychiatrists are licensed medical doctors. They can review your situation from a comprehensive medical perspective, assessing both psychological and physical symptoms to arrive at a diagnosis. Psychiatrists can request lab work, review your medical history, and administer the full range of treatment modalities, including prescription medications.
If medication is right for your situation, your psychiatrist will be able to prescribe it directly and work with you to ensure it’s having the desired effect. If talk therapy would be helpful, your psychiatrist may conduct those sessions personally or choose to coordinate with Thriveworks counselor or therapist to carry out those sessions in tandem.
